How to publish in this journal


The Journal of Asian Public Policy (JAPP) welcomes contributions with high-quality scholarly work or policy studies focused on Asia, one of the most vibrant regions of the global economy, with economic profiles that grow on an annual basis. East Asian economies that started to develop somewhat earlier, following the Japanese lead, remain among the most important economies in the world. The emergent regions of South and Southeast Asia have many dynamic economic sectors. Public policy, governance and development issues are drawing increasing attention not only from academia but also from the wider business, professional and policy communities. Since its official launch in 2008, JAPP has become one of the major public policy journals with a strong focus on issues related to development, policy and governance in Asia from comparative and international perspectives. JAPP , as one of the key venues for Area Studies, particularly welcomes contributions with strong comparative analysis relevant to current policy debates. Cross-regional studies of Asian interactions with other major global regions, and interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research, are definitely welcome. Articles that do not have an explicit Asian focus will be considered if they have clear relevance to an Asian readership. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
